NSF EPSCoR Reviewer and Workshop Opportunities & April Grant Writing News

NSF EPSCoR Review Panelist Opportunity

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is recruiting panelists to review the EPSCoR Research Fellows funding opportunity. This program provides early- and mid-career investigators support for extended travel to a host site to establish or strengthen research collaborations, learn new techniques and/or access state of the art facilities.

Reviewing for this program is a great opportunity for those interested in learning more about the program but have not yet applied to it. In addition to providing a great service to NSF and the science and engineering community, reviewers can gain first hand knowledge of the peer review process; learn about common problems with proposals; discover strategies to write strong proposals; and, through serving on a panel, meet colleagues and NSF program officers managing programs related to your interests.

To be considered, complete this survey by April 30, 2024.
